1. Begin With An Oil Cleanser
First thing, remove all makeup products from your skin. Pick an oil cleanser and apply it all over your face and neck. Make sure you cover the lip and eye area. Massage the cleanser gently into the skin, then dab some warm water on it.
Massage the wet skin and rinse it. The process melts the debris on your face and makes the skin clean and fresh. It gets rid of the makeup and dust that has accumulated on your face over the period of the day. The oil will melt the makeup off your skin, leaving it cleansed.
2. Follow Up With A Water-Based Cleanser
If you think you got done with cleansing after using the oil-based cleanser, then that’s not the case. There will still be some debris left on the face, and to remove that, you will need a water-based cleanser.
Wet your skin, apply the water-based cleanser, and gently massage it in a circular motion. Rinse it off with water. After this, your skin will be squeaky clean without a hint of dirt. The water-based cleanser removes any remaining residue from the skin.
Water-based cleansers either come in foam or gel-based forms. They remove the impurities that the oil cleansers have missed and cleanse the skin completely.
You need to remove the topmost layer of dead skin cells to reveal bright and polished skin. Scrubbing off dead skin cells helps skin care products to work on your skin thoroughly. Exfoliation clears pores and makes skin smoother and more radiant.
The microbeads in exfoliators help in removing dead skin cells. It makes your skin look flawless and helps your makeup to go on your skin much more smoothly.
Wet your skin and apply the exfoliant. Gently scrub it on your skin in circular motions and wash it off. You do not have to rub your face with an exfoliant every day. Use it three times a week if you have non-sensitive skin and twice a week if your skin is sensitive.
4. Tone Up
Toners refresh the skin and prep it to absorb the next product(s) well. They also balance the pH level of the skin. Toners balance the moisture levels of your skin and also remove any remote impurities that the cleansers might have missed.
Apply the toner on your face with your fingertips or dab it on your skin with cotton swabs. Massage in an outward motion – away from your nose, towards the ears.
5. Use Essence – A Korean Special
Essence is unique to the Korean beauty culture. It is a toner cum serum hybrid that has a watery consistency and skin repairing properties. It is hydrating and rejuvenates the skin.
After using two cleansers, you do need some extra moisture to restore the moisture balance in your skin. Essence does that for you! In addition to brightening your face, it balances the pH levels of your skin.
Pat essence on your face either with your fingertips or cotton swabs in an outward motion soon after you tone it and let it stay on.
6. Repair Your Skin With ‘Treatments’
When you have dark spots, uneven skin, pigmentation or any other specific skin issue, it is best to treat your skin accordingly. Choose among serums, ampoules, and boosters to help repair the skin and get rid of blemishes.
These treatments target the problem areas and combat skin issues like acne, wrinkles, large pores, and dull skin. They address the skin concern immediately and tackle it.
Take some of the treatment product on your fingertips and gently dab it onto your problem areas. Massage gently. They are perfect for solving skin issues.
